Adele's year-long UK chart-reign with her second album 21 has come to an end after being knocked out of the top 40 as the lastest instalment of Now That's What I Call Music has been named the fastest-selling album of 2012.

The 'Rolling In The Deep' songstress has broken all kinds of records since the album was released in 2011 including becoming the most downloaded album in UK history, the biggest-selling album of the 21st century and the fifth best-selling album in the UK of all time.

It has also sold more than 200,000 copies in its first week, debuting straight at number one and has been certified platinum 15 times by the British Phonographic Industry after shifting 4,500,000 units.

However, 22 months later, it has now been charted at 42 in this weekend's album charts, which is currently being reigned by Rihanna, whose seventh studio album Unapologetic debuted straight in at number one.

Meanwhile, Music Week reports that Now That's What I Call Music 83 has been named the fastest-selling album of the year in the UK, selling 295,789 copies in just one week since its release on November 19. Trailing behind Now is Mumford & Sons with Babel, Emeli Sande's Our Version Of Events and One D's Take Me Home.

Adele is no doubt too busy to notice these days as she has been spending time with her newborn son whom she gave birth to in October.

The tot's name is yet to be revealed although she was spotted enjoying an evening stroll with the baby and her partner Simon Konecki earlier this month.
